With Luciano Berio (1925-2003) we penetrate the inner process of composition: by dissecting for us the third movement of his "Sinfonia", he takes us on multiple musical paths, since this piece is first of all a tribute to Gustav Mahler.
The vessel rolled beneath the cloudless sky Like a white angel, drunk with solar fire. Why, Cytherea, famed in many a book, The Eldorado of old-stagers. Isle of green myrtles, where each flower uncloses, Adored by nations till the end of time: Sighs of adoring hearts, like incense, climb.
And pour their perfume over sheaves of roses, Or groves of turtles in an endless coo! it was a waste where nothing grows, Torn only by the raucous cries of crows: Yet there a curious object rose in view.
This was no temple hid in bosky trees, Where the young priestess, amorous of flowers, Whom secretly a loving flame devours, Walks with her robe half-open to the breeze.
For as we moved inshore to coast the shallows And our white canvas scared the crows to fly, Like a tall cypress, blackened on the sky, We saw it was a gaunt three-forking gallows.
